I like mixed media products and over time I have collected some that I do not use as intended as I did not like the results or just don't use them often enough for other things..they seem to last forever!
Some those products work well for adhering the aforementioned papers and embellishments to the page.
mod podge will work too, as with any of them you only need a thin layer and most, if not all, dry clear!
The gloss gel is what I use the most often as I don't use it at all for its intended use of doing photo transfers.
Thanks Sharon for this info. It's very helpful. I have gesso and have just bought gel medium. I also have mod podge and dimensional magic from years ago and forget to use them. I'll check gloss gel as I don't think I've heard of this but I will use up my stash first. I went shopping yesterday and broke the bank (again)
and bought up lots of mixed media embellishments, stamps, etc. I am just loving playing with different techniques. I watch so many videos and forget what I've seen so now I am trying things out in my journal and keeping notes for when I make LOs or cards.
I did end up stapling the yellow paper on my LO and it looks really cool.
I put up the post about National Scrapbooking Month to try and motivate more people on the site to scrapbook as this week I've heard 2 comments about scrapbooking being a dying craft. I have friends who used to scrapbook and still have stash but can't find the time so they now just make cards. I'm trying to encourage them to return to scrapping as well. Not sure if this forum was the right place, or even if I'm allowed to put up such posts....I'm still learning.
Thanks again. Happy day. Loving the group and creating.
Happy days and crafting 🙂
